What is Asatru?
Asatru is the belief in the Aesir and Vanir, the Nordic-Germanic Gods. This belief was part of the religion of the Germanic tribes but today it is an culturally independent religion. The Germans or Germanic people were a group of humans that had in common a certain tongue and their beliefs were different over distance and time and they changed. They had all in common the bound with the gods.
The bond with the Nordic-Germanic Gods
This bond keeps us together even today. Asatru is a modern religion with old roots. It is not about imitating what “once might have been”. Asatru is about living with the gods today, here and now, even though we do keep in mind what once was, and let the inspiration flow through the sources like the Edda.
Asatru is a religion
A religion lives from the change and reflects the necessities of the present believers. Tradition means to keep the good and meaningful, and to let go what has lost its meaning.
Equality of all mankind
We belief in the equality of all mankind. We strongly object any kind of misuse of Asatru by any extremist group or individuals. Any form of ostracism, right wing or radical mindsets has nothing in common with us. In the old times anyone who heard the call of the gods could follow them, and this is still true today.
